You have to give Disney a lot of credit when it comes to the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. When the first one was released, few people thought it would do well. After all, it was based on a ride in the Disney parks, and that made it something of a brand new IP almost nobody could relate to. Add to that the fact that the last big pirate-themed movie (Cutthroat Island) was so bad, it tanked its production studio, and it seemed like a massive gamble.
Of course, it's been nearly 20 years since Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl was released, and Disney's been raking in the cash. There have been four sequels with another in development, and there's even going to be a spin-off, which will likely get its own franchise. Disney is in the pirate business, and business has been good.
With so many movies released in the franchise, there are tons of clever little details hidden throughout. Some fans have picked up on a lot of these, and they have taken to the MovieDetails subreddit to share what they've found. The most interesting findings are found below, so take a look, and if you see something you didn't already know, go ahead and give it an upvote to see which one rises to the top!
